There are a whole lot of monitors on display at CES 2019, but ASUS' latest trio is sure to garner some attention from gamers. As part of the new Strix XG series, each monitor packs high refresh rates, support for AMD FreeSync 2 HDR, and come in a range of large sizes.
The leader here is the Strix XG428Q, which, at 43 inches, ASUS claims is the "world's biggest and fastest" HDR 4K gaming monitor. The XG428Q is DisplayHDR 600 certified and covers 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Gamers will be able to take advantage of a 120Hz refresh rate, which is pretty darn fast for a 4K monitor. And if you want to multitask, you can use both picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes to display content from two separate input sources on the same screen.
Joining the pack is the Strix XG32VQR, a 49-inch super ultra-wide monster of a monitor with a 3840 x 1080 resolution. The screen is DisplayHDR 400 compliant and once again covers 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The 144Hz refresh rate offers a speedy stream of frames and you can utilize the incredibly wide display area to view up to three input sources on the same screen.
Lastly, there's the Strix XG32VQR, a 32-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) curved display. Sporting a 144Hz refresh rate, the XG32VQR is DisplayHDR 400 compliant and covers 94 percent of the DCI-P3 gamut.
No matter which monitor you go with, you'll be able to take advantage of FreeSync 2 HDR. Along with keeping frames in sync between the monitor and graphics card to eliminate choppy gameplay, FreeSync HDR 2 features Low Framerate Compensation (LFR), which introduces frames to keep animations fluid between 48Hz and 144Hz. That's something that can come in handy when your framerate drops while trying to push graphically intensive games to their max.
All three monitors are expected to launch towards the end of January, but pricing is still a mystery for now.
